    He was a beast last night, against a good Dallas team, with very good bigs.
     Look at Roy,Oden and LA now. Who is the soft one ?? 

    LA has logged more minutes than Roy, and I have not heard any whining.

    Come on Blazer nation, the situation with Roy is what it is. Harping on it, won't make it any better. Look at the positives. Dallas imo, is a better team than San Antonio, the Spurs have had a softer schedule.
    Last nights game, even though it ended with the wrong score, was positive.

    Go Blazers !!!!

    My love for LA today isn't unconditional.  I think I may be speaking for many when I say that I've known THAT LA to be there his entire Blazer career.  My issue, especially after the dominating performance I witnessed last night, is that it seems to have been a personal "choice" of Aldridge...when to impose his will on the opponent, and when to simply just sit back and play at half speed.  My hope is, that now it has more or less become obvious that Roy is no longer the emphasis at the offensive end, LA feels it a position HE can now fill.  That's my hope.  If that is, indeed, the explanation for the awakening of LA last night, then we all surely have reasons to be optimistic today.  The "inside-out" offense I've been calling for for years may now actually be on the Blazer's door step.  Aldridge becoming a factor ON THE BLOCK, will open up things on the perimeter and give the 10 jumpshooters better looks.

    This would be the silver lining IMO

    Personal choice, or learning to be the #1 option, when for years he was the #2 option, and having to play the 5 when he is a 4 ??
    I guess I am biased because I <3 LA and Nicos games so much, I give them more of a learning curve, since the world as they have known it, their entire Blazer careers has been turned upside down with the back and forth catering to #7.

    Nic needs a stable role if Nate wants him to be the 6th man. Sporatic minutes make it hard to get a groove.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
